(Ph/Vogue Paris - May 2013)
It's not so much that editorials haven't inspired me of late, quite the opposite, in fact - heck was this not the month that I decided to give Tumblr a go, in a desperate bid to prevent my virtual scrapbooks from spiralling out of control? So why the sudden high fashion moodboard you might wonder... That thing, the one whereby the stylist throws caution to the wind and brings a true oddball to show-and-tell gets me every time. The adrenaline of the unexpected, if you will.
And adrenaline, this girl seems to ooze out of every pore.
The graphic, colour-blocked motorcycling gear from Shift elevates the story above and beyond the realm of that tight-knit family that was christened Fashion capital f. Am I the only one disappointed not to see it labelled in the styling credits? Spill the beans, Emmanuelle.
